Free ice-cream: Sunday, February 10, the RNA and Sunnyside Neighborhood Association will hold their annual movie fundraiser at McMenamins’ Bagdad Theater, SE Hawthorne Blvd and 37th Ave.  Ben & Jerry’s is donating ice-cream for the event, which will be served in the lobby from 1 – 2 pm, while supply lasts. The movie title will be announced the week before on the Bagdad’s website as well as the RNA’s and SNA’s websites and the film will be rated G or PG. Tickets $5 for adults and $1 for children under 12. 1 pm doors, 2 pm movie.

RNA will use its share of funds raised for its annual free movie in Sewallcrest Park on August 17 and will be another Filmusik live-soundtrack production with the band Blue Cranes performing the music for the film “Planet of Dinosaurs.”

RNA received a grant from the Neighborhood Small Grant Program through Southeast Uplift for a Richmond Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness Program. The program consists of workshops that will focus on different aspects of emergency preparedness. The workshops will consist of four topics; a home plan, the kit and what goes in it, getting your house prepared, and creating a neighborhood network. We are looking for volunteers to help with the preparation of these events. If interested, contact Callie Jones at or come to the monthly RNA Sustainability Committee meetings on the last Wednesday of every month from 7-10 pm at Townshend’s Tea, 3531 SE Division St.
